PLASMA PROCESSING

Methods and technologies that utilize a plasma to treat and manufacture materials, generally through etching, deposition, or chemical alteration at a surface inside or at the boundary of the plasma.

PILOT-SCALE CHEMICAL REACTION

Small-scale chemical reaction used to test operating conditions and product yields; used as a pilot for design of large-scale reaction systems.

PHOTOELECTRIC FLUOROMETER

A device using a photoelectric cell to measure fluorescence in a chemical sample that has been excited (one or more electrons have been raised to higher energy level) by ultraviolet or visible light; used for analysis of chemical mixtures.

PECLET NUMBER

Dimensionless group used to determine the chemical reaction similitude for the scale-up from pilot-plant data to commercial-sized units; incorporates heat capacity, density, fluid velocity, and other pertinent physical parameters.

OXYGEN CUTTING

Any of several types of cutting processes in which metal is removed with or without a flux by a chemical reaction of the base metal with oxygen at high temperatures.

NUCLEAR CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

The branch of chemical engineering that deals with the production and use of radioisotopes.

NODULIZING

Creation of spherical lumps from powders by working them together, coalescing them with binders, drying fluid-solid mixtures, heating, or chemical reaction.

NITROGEN FIXATION

Conversion of atmospheric nitrogen into compounds such as ammonia, calcium cyanamide, or nitrogen oxides by chemical or electric-arc processes.

MULTICHIP MICROCIRCUIT

Microcircuit in which discrete, miniature, active electronic elements (transistor or diode chips) and thin-film or diffused passive components or component clusters are interconnected by thermocompression bonds, alloying, soldering, welding, chemical deposition, or metallization.

MICROSENSOR

A submicrometerto millimeter-size device that converts a nonelectrical physical or chemical quantity, such as pressure, acceleration, temperature, or gas concentration, into an electrical signal; it is generally able to offer better sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and reliability, as well as lower power consumption, compared to larger counterparts.
